A: Hello Daniel,
A convicted sex offender has a difficult time getting hired. I suggest contacting your parole or probation officer. Often they have knowledge of employers who have hired offenders.
Another solution is to apply for temporary employment. Many employers are in need of temporary help. Often temporary employees are hired permanently. Smaller independent agencies are a better choice than larger, nationally known ones. Independent agencies are free to hire anyone they choose and are more likely to hire felons and ex-offenders. Larger agencies often have to comply with the policies of the parent company.
One tactic that I often suggest sex offenders to use is to apply to smaller companies. Smaller companies are less likely to use background expensive background checks. On the application, leave the space where the criminal background question blank. It is a chance the employer may not notice it. If he does, be prepared to briefly talk about your conviction.
Sex offender jobs may be difficult to find but a little hard work will pay off.
I hope this helps
